Torture BAD!!!

Unbelievably, a near unanimous bloc of Senate Democrats voted against the confirmation of Alberto Gonzales. While a little less than I had hoped for, 36 is not bad; especially when you realize thatmany red-staters joined in the fight.

Evan Bayh (D-IN) Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) Robery Byrd (D-WV) Byron Dorgan (D-ND) Tom Harkin (D-IA) Tim Johnson (D-SD) Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) Harry Reid (D-NV) Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) Not present (fighting off Bush misinformation in their home states) Max Baucus (D-MT) Kent Conrad (D-ND)
What's really distressing are those who voted for Gonzales from our side of the aisle. They include:
(1) Senator Ken Salazar (Colorado). (2) Senator Joseph Lieberman (Conn.). (3) Senator Ben Nelson (Neb.). (4) Senator Mary Landrieu (La.) (5) Senator Pryor (Ark). (6) Senator Bill Nelson (Fla.)
And I was just starting to like Lieberman for his stand on supporting Social Security and his really funny jokes on The Daily Show after the Inauguration. Now I have to start a blood feud with him...again!

I suppose you'd have been happy with a straight party line vote...

I'm beginning to grin from ear to the Dems disintegrate before my very eyes.

Bring on Hillary in '08! Condy will clean her clock and send her packing back to Little Rock!
